The Mirbeau Gateway project's five residential units have been approved after bouncing back and forth between the village of Skaneateles' planning board and zoning board of appeals in what became about a three-year process.
Overall, the project includes a roughly 3.5 acre expansion to the spa's current facilities. One portion of the expansion, previously approved, was adding three new extended-stay lodging units. These buildings will each have three levels and house three suites and include additional amenities than typically found in a hotel room.
The five single-family homes, approved Wednesday at a village of Skaneateles zoning board of appeals meeting, are the second portion of the long-awaited expansion.
